Tech trends to watch out in 2015


Every January brings along flood of predictions to guide us through the trends that will shape businesses in the coming year. With us already in 2015, it would be quite apt to list down a few of our expectations for this year. So here are the top 5 tech trends we can expect to take off in 2015.

Mobility: 2015 will see mobility becoming even more pervasive. According to a recent survey by Citrix, 71 per cent of the enterprises believe that mobility is a top priority while 63 per cent believe it to be the biggest factor in helping them gain a competitive advantage. These stats surely speak aloud about the future of mobility, which will see lots of enterprise applications getting native mobile interface. Many new applications will start with mobile first design and implementation. Along with this, mobile devices (including tablets) will become smarter and more powerful with much better computation and storage capabilities.

Cloud Computing: Trend of cloud computing will continue to grow in this year. With large growth in data storage, more and more applications being delivered on SaaS model, cloud computing will keep growing. According to a study by Gartner, 50 per cent of the enterprises will use hybrid cloud by 2017. This clearly implies that we should be seeing more hybrid clouds where there is an easier integration between private and public clouds keeping different security requirements in mind.

Wearables / Smarter Devices: Market for wearables will expand exponentially. 2015 should see some of innovative prototypes finally coming of age and in mass production and usage. They can be smart watches, google glasses or phones capable of monitoring health parameters and providing value added services.

Smart Data / Intelligent Analytics: Some of the problems being faced in Big Data space about gaining actionable insights rapidly from mountains of data being stored will be resolved. This will lead to further adoption of Big Data in large number of enterprises and products. We should also witness easy integration and innovative usage of Big Data in varied business contexts.

Mobile Identities: With us living in a mobile-driven world, mobile identity emerges as a very critical concern. User's private and public identity will be more effectively and seamlessly used across applications and devices. This will enhance user-experience, more context specific and personalised services.
